Armwell L. Cooper was
born at Willow Grove, Delaware, November 15, 1870. He began
acquiring his education at an early age, and was a pupil at the
Wilmington Conference Academy in Dover. His family came West
when he was rather young, and Mr. Cooper finished his education at the
Kansas State Normal, Ft. Scott.
He came to Kansas City in 1890, and soon
afterwards entered a local law office. He was admitted to the
bar July 15, 1895, after which he entered the law office of Mr. Henry
Wollman. Mr. Wollman left the city for New York, and after his
departure the firm of Wollman, Solomon & Cooper was formed, the
individual member being Benjamin Wollman, brother to Henry Wollman,
Henry C. Solomon, and Mr. Cooper. During the few years that have
elapsed since Mr. Cooper's admittance to the bar, he has taken rapid
strides toward making a place for himself among the leading members of
the local bar.
He is a Democrat in politics, and is an
officer in the leading Democratic club of the city, the Jackson County
Democratic Club. He belongs to the Knights of Pythias.
Mr. Cooper is married, his wife being
formerly Miss Caroline Ley, of this city. Mr. and Mrs. Cooper
have one child, a girl, named Dorothy Emily.
